Folie à Deux Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

After a cold pre-soak, the grapes were fermented using the Délestage method followed by an extended maceration that totaled 14 days. This allowed the juice to spend more time on the skins helping to increase both the color and flavor of the wine. The wine was then aged for 18 months in French and American oak.

  In 1981, two wine-loving psychiatrists established a boutique winery they name Folie a Deux, a French term meaning “A passion shared by two.”  Thirty years later, our shared passion is creating world-class varietal wines from the leading appellations of Sonoma County. Made to be enjoyed upon release, our Russian River Valley Chardonnay, Sonoma County Merlot, Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, and Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel embody the perfect fusion of grape variety and growing region.  Showcasing vibrant aromas and flavors, they offer a striking balance of intensity and accessibility.  At Folie a Deux, we think it’s ok to be a little crazy about wine.  After all, we are!

Tasting Notes:

Beautiful aromas of tart black cherry are complemented by bold flavors of blackberry and raspberry. Well-integrated tannins and essences of dark toffee and treacle provide a nice finish. This 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is a powerful wine with good structure and balance.

After a cold pre-soak, the grapes were fermented using the Délestage method followed by an extended maceration that totaled 14 days. This allowed the juice to spend more time on the skins helping to increase both the color and flavor of the wine. The wine was then aged for 18 months in French and American oak.
